EROTICA

For Georges Bataille’s birthday I used the footage from the Bataille Surrealist Erotica episode and cut down to a 2 minute tribute video. I’ve been going through all the episodes of the series and doing this… I’m not sure what I will do with these short versions, but they are less explicit that the originals.

I added a photoset and a video for OnlyFans subscribers this week.

Last year I started working on a video/photo series called “Witchcraft Erotica” that I never finished. I’ve been editing the older footage and filming some new stuff for it. I’m going to cut it all into a short film.

Temple ov Saturn at Ceremony 224

I played a show this week at Ceremony 224. I did a Temple ov Saturn set and a short set of my poetry. Thanks to all who came out.  I probably won't be performing in September because I want to work on recording. I have some shows lined up in October and November, I will announce them as I get the information. 

Best of The Whip Angels

Best of The Whip Angels

I released a "best of" collection of The Whip Angels material. A lot of the releases are inconsistent and that was something that I felt made the project confusing for listeners. I chose my personal favorites and the stuff that I think best represents the project and released it on Bandcamp.

ETC...

I spent a lot of my time this week practicing for the show on Thursday and preparing all the photos/zines/prints/buttons etc to bring there so my creative output was a bit sparse. Traveling to Brooklyn and performing takes a lot out of me so I spent Friday resting. Tomorrow I'm heading upstate for a week for a much needed break from my personal life and work.

I will have these prints (and some others) at the next Temple ov Saturn show. From now on I will be taking custom orders instead of stocking prints. If you would like a print of any of my artwork, please contact me through my contact form. Its better this way so you can request whatever size you'd like for whatever artwork or photo you want. Custom orders are also available internationally.

Video / Photo

This week I added the last 3 videos to the main Surrealist Erotica series, and creating some videos for the Surrealist Masks mini-series, and created a separate on-Demand subscription page for the less explicit, more experimental videos related to the Surrealist Erotica project. As I wrote in my last post, the Surrealist Erotica project is far from over...

I also did a photo series called The Pioneer Spirit:

Writing/Other

I wrote a short write up about how I am constantly asked to explain all of my art and I think that its a way for people to admit that they are intellectually and spiritually lazy.

And I wrote a new poem. It feels a little like a work in progress, but its something...

Month in Review: January 2018

So far, 2018 already feels better than 2017. Overall, its been a good month. Before I overview my works created this month, I want to revise my intention to create a book series related to the Surrealist Erotica stuff. I originally thought I'd do a series of separate books, each one dedicated to a different artist or writer. I've decided to go a different way with it- make one book- that includes my Surrealist-related erotic photos, collages, and other art and literary works created with the techniques of the Surrealists. There will be a run of regularly printed books, and then a special limited edition where the contents are loose in a box, a la Duchamp's Box-in-a-Valise. Follow me on Twitter and Steemit to keep up-to-date on my Surrealist-related works.

Music

I released a collection of many of my early, instrumental, unfinished works as a free album called Excess on Bandcamp:

I also released a remix of a song I did with Primitive Knot last year. Its also a free download on Bandcamp: 

I also released 2 songs as Pope Joan II, which are more of the classical music remixes I've been doing. The first samples Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusick. I used it as the soundtrack to the Dorothea Tanning episode of the Surrealist Erotica video because she has a painting with the same title. The other remix sampled Ravel's Le tombeau de Couperin.

I released a few new tracks on D-sound as well that I will eventually put on Bandcamp as a collection. Check them out: Dream Dealer, Interwar Tension, and Practical Dreamer.

Erotica

I added some more episodes to the Surrealist Erotica series: Juliet Man Ray, Jacques-Andre Boiffard, Andre Masson, Dorothea Tanning, and Alice Prin. I also added new stuff to OnlyFans and I created a curated "best of" type collection for Vimeo-on-Demand called The Erotic Collection.

Bonus video inspired by a series of Man Ray photos:

I created a "best of" collection called The Erotic Collection available through Vimeo-on-Demand. Its selected videos that have been published already on OnlyFans. I'll be adding to it as time goes on.


Videos

I only made one collage-esque video this month. I made a couple other videos using found footage for some of my music. 


Outings

I don't get out much in general, but in the winter its especially bad. I attended the PBR Buck Off at Madison Square Garden and saw the New York Philharmonic perform Ravel and Debussy. Other than that, I've just been working on my art and music.
